Brazil take on Iraq on Thursday in an international friendly in Sweden. The fixture represents the return of Real Madrid midfielder Kaká who has not appeared for Brazil since the World Cup finals in South Africa in 2010.
Iraq are led by Brazil legend Zico but are 80th in the FIFA world ranking and the fixture has been heavily criticized as Brazil prepare for the Confederations Cup in Brazil next year and the World Cup in 2014.
